Washington Post Says Creme Cafe Not Closing!!!

This morning I passed on the word from Creme’s Web site saying that they had closed. Turns out it was a hoax of sorts. Thanks to a reader for sending this link:

The restaurant’s management team, which has been running the location for 6 years, was dismissed and their last day was Thursday. For the time being, Crème Café and current chef, Orlando Hitzig, will continue normal operations, though there may be changes on the horizon. “The chef is going to stay on for now,” Alewa says, “We might make a change and go back to our original style of menu. Though it will be very similar.”

Which, of course, is a far cry from shuttering its doors.
